Original creation date: November 2009

The main objective of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) research presented in this paper was to determine if there were visual performance improvements for the detection of moving objects in the peripheral field of view when using cool-white light-emitting diode (LED) cap lamps as compared to incandescent (INC) light bulbs commonly used in miner cap lamps. The second objective was to determine if age is a factor for peripheral visual performance given that there is an aging workforce.
